    What has happended to me this year:
    1. Started fading (yay!).
    2. Happiness (yay!).
    3. Found new friends.
    4. Brother divorced.
    5. Switched over to Linux permanently.

    So what about everyone else?

    1. Got used to the Bay Area (California)

    2. Learned that even if I get used to a certain place I still get homesick

    3. Learned that even if I'm paying for advice from people (grad school) it doesn't mean I should take it

    4. Made some new friends

    5. Realized I'm not really over being raised a JW --which led me to this forum

    6. Started talking to friends about how I was raised (it might not be a big thing for others but it was a huge leap for me)

    2004...where did the year go?

    1. I learned that no matter how big the crisis, how painful the experience, I can get thru something. That I don't have to let what happened make me bitter and synical towards life. That I can still see the good in the world and still enjoy my life.

    2. I learned the true meaning of compassion.

    3. I learned the appreciation of "true" friends and the difference (again) between true friends and acquaintances.

    4. My love for my children just gets deeper and deeper. 2004 brought me a few heartaches but much joy. My children are my life and I am very proud of each and every one of the. I noticed over this past year as they grew older how each of them has an attribute special to their personality.

    It was a really busy year, that went very fast. Some of the highlights:

    1. Our oldest granddaughter graduated from high school in June
    2. Our 8th grandchild was born in August
    3. One of our grandsons started Kindergarten in September
    4. We bought a new car, finally, in October
    5. Our youngest granddaughter ran the Seattle Kid's Marathon (cumulative 25 miles)
    6. Our daughter ran the Seattle Marathon in November
    7. I got a digital camera for Christmas

    I think everyone moved at a different pace to me during 2004, so I'm still trying to catch up.
